So I'm really struggling with the hurt and anger at now becoming a single parent . I have so many emotions and no idea how to deal with it all . On top of that I just been diagnosed with adult ADD .
This isn't how life is supposed to be

*big hugs* I know how you feel, I was there a year ago and still have days where it feels life just isn't fair. Everyone I know are in couples and they just can't understand the challenges of single parents. All you can do is keep going, take one day at a time and do the best you can. We have little people that need us to. Find one person you can talk to, or write your emotions down, go for a run, boxing...anything to get your feelings out, it's worse if you don't deal with them. It's hard and I feel for you but know it does get better, it just takes time. Here if you need to chat or vent

In these down times- I try and remind myself about all the great things in my life and why I'm so incredibly lucky, and I also try and tell myself that this is just a phase and this feeling will pass.

Lots of hugs. It is hard but there are also great times to make up for the hard times.
Make sure you look after yourself by venting it all out, whether here, with a friend or there's always lifeline and other organizations.
Time does help to heal the wounds and you will get to that time where you're ok. But you will still have crappy times or even days but just take it how it comes. Life likes to do that, so to keep us grounded and know what we should be grateful for (my belief anyways).

For me it just hurts at family functions where I'm now the only single one....but I know that will change soon.
